Tigridia 2nd year. Ginkgo seedlings.
Tigridia and Ginkgo biloba
I read that Tigridia won't survive a wet winter, so I treated these as annuals last year. They were planted in a barrel among ginkgo trees Ning was growing - seedlings I started several years back.
Ning moved the ginkgos to Battleground, and planted in his perennial garden. Intent is to keep them pruned as small trees. Interesting, the tigridia came back, blooming among the ginkgos.
